‘Latest changes will benefit all different types of savers’

Tom Riley, director of retail products at Nationwide Building Society, said: “We continue to keep our savings rates under regular review in this fast-changing market and we remain committed to supporting savers with the best rates we can sustainably afford.

“As a result, we’ve made a number of rate increases this year to both our off-sale and on-sale savings ranges. In fact, in recent months, our average deposit rate has been at least 70% higher than the market average.

“These latest changes will benefit all different types of savers. As a building society, it’s important to us that we encourage children to start saving, helping people develop a savings habit and rewarding our existing members. We’ve also increased the rates on previous issues of our Triple Access Online products so members who already have one of the accounts will have their rate automatically increased to the new improved rate.”

The changes to the off-sale accounts follow Nationwide’s recent rate increases to its live and on-sale fixed rate products and the current, on-sale issue of the Triple Access Online accounts.
